Well guys, it's been a long time coming, but check it out, we've relaunched the Toronto Craft Alert in a stylish and oh-so-functional new format! You can find it at torontocraftalert.ca. Please check it out, change your bookmarks & let us know what you think.
This was a huge job that could not have happened without the creative genius and blood sweat & tears of web designer Curtis Townson, graphics gal Natalie Do, TCA vet Angelune Des Lauriers, creative advisor Danielle Anisef & our tireless TCA interns. Plus of course generous funding from the Ontario Arts Council! Heartfelt thanks to all of these peeps for making this happen.
Look at the fantastic things that find their way into the Craft Toronto photo pool on Flickr. The Torontoist link (above) is totally worth a visit. Be careful with that speedy picking, though, Mr. Watson. You cut poke a finger off!
Radiant Dark is a modern, Canadian design exhibition featuring the work of 33 design studios. Julie Nicholson and Shaun Moore of MADE have conceived Radiant Dark as a series of independent, curated exhibitions. The 2009 theme of Radiant Corruptions is explored through the fresh vision of contemporary Canadian designers, makers, architects, artists and craftspeople.
A provocative exploration of the relationships between elegance and corruption is the vehicle for Radiant Dark's continuing conversation through design. This year the exhibition includes an informal discussion "Walk & Talk". The event is free to the public and takes the form of an informal guided tour as eight design studios discuss their work and practice. "Walk & Talk" features - Cali Balles and Don Maclennan, Lubo Brezina, Heidi Earnshaw, Jennifer Graham, Jeremy Hatch, Bev Hisey, Angela Iarocci, Tamara Rushlow.
* Exhibition is free to the public.
